Giant Whole Wheat Banana- Strawberrry Muffins

I came across this recipe, and it's really yummy. It's a perfect way to use up some ripe bananas and those fresh strawberries that you just picked.

2 eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup vegetable oil (I like to use Walnut Oil in my baking, just for a little healthier version)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 bananas, mashed
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 cup sliced frozen strawberries (fresh, frozen from the berry patch are the best!)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 12 large muffin cups, or line with paper liners.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, applesauce, oil, brown sugar, vanilla and bananas. Combine the flour, baking soda and cinnamon; Stir into the banana mixture until moistened. Stir in the strawberries until evenly distributed. Spoon batter into muffin cups until completely filled.
Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the tops of the muffins spring back when pressed lightly. Cool before removing from the muffin tins.
